Classroom Routines

Star of the Week

Students will be selected to be our classroom Star of the Week! In addition to some classroom roles and responsibilities, they will be tasked with bringing in a school appropriate item for sharing. I will email the Star of the Week families a week in advance to inform you that your child is our star the next week.

Home Reading

Students will be required to read a “good fit” book, story, magazine, etc. five times a week both silently and out loud to increase reading fluency and confidence. The goal is to teach reading enjoyment and establish a habit of reading for fun! In addition to our daily reading, students will be asked to select a book or story to read out loud to an adult at home and complete a comprehension sheet that uses a reading skill we are learning in class. Sheets will go home every Tuesday and be due the following Tuesday.

Spelling

Students will be taught and given themed spelling lists every week. They will complete spelling activities and journal writes to practice and solidify their understanding of the different spelling patterns. Students will be given a word list to take home to allow for at home review if necessary to achieve confidence in spelling those words correctly!

Library

Library is every week on Friday. Students will be allowed to check out 1 book if they have returned their previous book.

Physical Education/Music

PE with Mr. Durante is every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Music is every Monday and Thursday.
